In Nagiso area, carving the broad-leaved trees that have beautiful wood patterns and grow in the Kiso Valley such as Japanese yew, Japanese horse chestnut, sennoki, katsura on a lathe has been very popular since the Edo Period.
Craftsmanship that has been passed down from generation to generation is shown in the product’s tender texture and beautiful wood patterns.
